Best Damn Program - Goblet Squat Help?


#1

Coach love the program!!! My question is regarding Goblet Squat and the weight needed to hit 10-12 reps. I find it a real struggle to use enough weight and being able to hold it in position. Any suggestions?


#2

Well it uses slow tempo, so the weight probably doesn’t need to be that high. You can substitute the Goblet squat for lumberjack squats


#3

Could you just use a barbell variation with a load that allows you to stick to the prescribed tempo?


#4

Do you mean it’s not heavy enough? A pair of 70s is nothing to scoff at for 10-12 slow reps.
Or is maintaining position the issue? keep chest up and keep your back tight.
